Watchtower Destination


On this page


Watchtower is a platform to discover, classify, and protect sensitive data, like customer PII, across cloud services & data infrastructure. This enables you to identify sensitive data that you’re ingesting and sending to various business-critical systems – so you can manage the customer data you’re disseminating across services.

This destination is maintained by Watchtower. For any issues with the destination, contact the Watchtower Support team.
